LOW CARBOHYDRATE RECIPES
LOW CARBOHYDRATE BEVERAGES
All Fat & Carb Values Are Approximate
If you're watching your carb intake for foods, you must also keep track of your liquid carb intakes.
Sodas, chocolate milk, coffee with sugar all add carbs and calories - excess carbs and calories! - and if weight-loss is your objective, it's wise to modify your "drinking" habits too.
Sugar- and salt-containing beverages actually inhibit healthy weight loss and maintenance. They add no food value to a diet and actually encourage you to overeat.
I have noticed, myself, that when I have a beverage that contains sugar, my stomach feels queezy and hungry and I always want something to eat. But when I drink water or a non-sugar beverage, the cravings are minimal and much easier to resist.
I also notice that my system doesn't function as it normally would - sluggish, retain fluids, gain weight!
Even if you don't maintain or subscribe to a low-carb diet, you can take away some very good information and good eating habits.
